Bluebird Handmade Market

How it Started

Zoe and Aaron Lawn started organising Bluebirds Handmade Market because they felt there weren’t any good quality markets in this area for handcrafted items.  They had been stall holders at a few craft fairs and were always disappointed in terms of footfall and the quality of stalls.  Speaking to other stall holders; they realised that they felt the same way; that organisers seemed to only be interested in filling the spaces rather than keeping standards high or having a good variety of different crafts.

They then decided to organise their first market which was held in November last year.  It was at quite a small venue with space for 18 stall holders. They enjoyed it so much and had such positive feedback that they decided to organise another at a larger venue in the Spring.

Summer Event

Fast forward to 1st July 2018 and we are very excited that Zoe and Aaron have chosen the Royal Assembly Rooms for both the summer (and Christmas events).

How wonderful it is to play host to 50 incredibly talented local artists, designers, creators and craftspeople who will be selling an amazing variety of gifts, illustrations, ceramics, clothing, jewellery, photography, homewares, artwork, toys, home and garden decor and lots more.

And because the couple carefully cherry pick all the stall holders for the fantastic quality of their work and variety, there really will be something for everyone!

Make a day of it!

Come along and make a day of it. The Royal Assembly Rooms is located just off Great Yarmouth’s famous Marine Parade, so why not combine a visit to the Bluebirds Handmade Market with a day at the seaside?!

Entry is FREE along with car parking, plus there is a licensed bar and light lunches available to order. Don’t worry if you have a buggy or a wheelchair as our venue is accessible too.

This is an incredible opportunity to see all the talented people from this area and have the chance to support small, independent artists and businesses. We can almost guarantee you’ll be leaving with some fabulous and unique purchases both for yourself and as gifts for friends and family – Then come back again at Christmas for more!
